Feedback from 2017 Benefits Enrollment
Why we recommend that you complete your benefit enrollment with a Clarity Enrollment Solutions Benefits Counselor.
"I wanted to let you guys know that I so enjoyed meeting with my benefits counselor today. I’m thankful that we went with a different company this year. He was a complete 180 from the Colonial reps of the past. Personable, approachable, didn’t give me a creepy used car salesman vibe and so very informative.”
- Elk River/Otsego Employee
"[The benefit counselor] was helpful and knowledgeable, and didn’t push products. She took the time to discuss life issues and figure out which benefits would be worth it to have, and which ones didn’t make sense at this time. After my previous experiences, I was dreading today's appointment and was pleasantly surprised."
- Arden Hills Employee
